they can't be cut off if they get cancer, for example. and a lot of those plans that people had in the past that were paying a little bit of money for, that's exactly what happened to them. now, if they stayed healthy, they were fine. but if they got sick, that's when the insurance companies clamped down on them and that's what we're ending. >> do you think there's been some miscommunication on the part of the president, on the part of the white house and what do you want to get out of the hearing tomorrow? >> well, first of all, i want to be reassured that they're fixing the glitches in the system, so people can go online. what i'm going to point out tomorrow is that the states that had set up their state exchanges, like rhode island, kentucky, maryland, even the district of columbia, those are working great. but the republican governors in many of these states would not set up a state exchange, they wanted the federal government to do it. so much for state's rights, huh? but the states that set it up, it's working just fine. so we have to keep that in mind. let's fix the system. but let's not lose sight of the big picture.
